When a hive of honey bees showed up in an owl house high above Monica O’Flanagan’s front yard, the South Tampa mom wanted the bees gone but not killed.
“We wanted to do the right thing,” O’Flanagan said. “We needed them to go because we have a lot of kids in the neighborhood. We know bees are endangered and struggling right now.”
She saw an ad from an area bee rescue service and hired Christian and Stephanie Ramthun to have the bees relocated to a farm in Odessa. The couple spent nearly an hour removing the owl house while using duct tape to try to keep as many bees as they could inside.
